You thought they couldn’t squeeze more juice from the Law & Order franchise but baby you were wrong!
Law & Order have ordered up another spinoff that focuses less on the front line of crime and more about the system of defense.
Titled Law & Order: For the Defense set inside a criminal defense firm following defense attorneys as they navigate the system the justice system focusing each week on ‘contemporary mortality tales.’
Creator of CSI: Miami Carol Mendelsohn will be the showrunner and executive producer of the upcoming show, speaking to E! Online she announced, “This new show is exciting for me personally, We spent the last 30 years on shows that played offense. Now it will be great to play defense, and being able to do it with Carol is an honour and an opportunity for both of us to do television that hasn’t been done before.”
After Law & Order debuted in 1990, the original spinoff Law & Order: SVU has celebrated 22 seasons since then, here’s to another 22 with Law & Order: For The Defense!
